I hired Caroline for my second birth.  I had a scheduled Csection with my first and wanted desparately to have a natural VBAC with my second.  She was great and helped me to achieve the natural birth that I desired.  She was always an email or text message away and was willing to come to my house while I labored at home if I so desired.  After getting to the hospital at 8cm dilated, my contractions slowed.  Caroline was there to encourage me to walk the halls and keep moving in order to keep things progressing.  She suggested positions that ultimately encouraged things to progress and I had a baby after being at the hispital less than 3 hours.  I was so thankful to have her guidance.  My husband said that he wouldn't have known what to do if it wasn't for Caroline.  She suggested that he help in various ways.  My husband and I are thankful for Caroline's support and I can't say that I would have had the natural delivery that I had hoped for if it wasn't for her. She's great!

Well what can I say!!!!! We did it Caroline! I was connected to Caroline through a FB group! Yes, FB I was in labor 1-9-18 and my support wasn’t being supportive so Caroline reached out to me to see if she could be of any assistanc! I told he yes! I was afraid that I Couldn’t give birth naturally. So convinced that I was going to feel Caroline reminded me that I was strong my body was made to do this.Caroline was willing to go above and beyond to assist me. I was 45 minutes away from her location and she said just give the word I’m there! She wasn’t with me in person but she was definitely with me in spirit! I will never ever the kindnesses and gentle approach she used to get me to over come my feelar of pain while helping me build my confidence. I would recommend her to any First time or even 4th time mom. I’m 100% sure you won’t regret it I promise you that!!

I had a wonderful experience with Caroline Hurst. She was very knowledgeable of all my questions. She was extremely helpful with all my needs through the delivery. She was incredibly suportive with my decisions. She guided my partner and I through a long and diffucult labor. Everthing turned out just fine thanks to her presence. We deliver a beautiful healthy baby girl. I highly recommend Caroline as a doula, she was the best!
